Class of 2012 Recruiters of the year

Posted by Bryan Fischer

The letters have been faxed and the recruiting classes set so it's time to assess how each and every team did. While the program and head coach played huge roles in recruits committing to a school, the assistants who developed a bond with them are just as big - if not bigger - of a reason as to why they're headed to the college campus of their choice by the fall. Here are the top assistants who hauled in their fair share of top prospects in the class of 2012, sorted by each conference.

ACC: Brennan Carroll
  Tight Ends coach & Recruiting Coordinator
School: Miami
Class: #7 overall
Background: 2nd year at the school
Comment: Landing 33 commitments is notable but the quality of guys Carroll was able to help land - with the NCAA hovering over the program - is pretty remarkable. The fact that the Hurricanes landed just about every target is also impressive. Though he was mainly involved with the out-of-state guys personally, he helped Al Golden plan and execute a strategy for the class of 2012.
Notable recruits
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) defensive end Jelani Hamilton
Miramar (Fla.) defensive back Tracy Howard
Miami (Fla.) running back Duke Johnson
Runner ups
Florida State's Dameyune Craig, Virginia's Chip West
Big East: Jeff Hafley
  Secondary coach
School: Rutgers
Class: #23 overall
Background: 2nd year at the school
Comment: The fact that Rutgers was able to not only keep an impressive class together but add to it following the departure of Greg Schiano is very impressive. Hafley was the man at Don Bosco and he cleaned up most of the top targets there and in the area with new head coach Kyle Flood.

Notable recruits
Ramsey (N.J.) wide receiver Leonte Carroo
Ramsey (N.J.) defensive end Darius Hamilton
Saddle Brook (N.J.) linebacker Steven Longa
Runner ups
Louisville's Clint Hurtt, USF's Phil McGeoghan
Big Ten: Mike Vrabel
  Defensive line coach
School: Ohio State
Class: #3 overall
Background: 2nd year at the school
Comment: One of the holdovers from the previous staff, Vrabel is a big name among recruits from his playing days. He was instrumental in landing the #3 overall player in the country and teamed with Urban Meyer to land one of the top defensive classes in the country.






Notable recruits
Harrisburg (Pa.) defensive end Noah Spence
West Roxbury (Mass.) linebacker Camren Williams
 
Runner up
Michigan's Fred Jackson
Big 12: Jay Norvell
  Wide receivers coach
School: Oklahoma
Class: #8 overall
Background: 5th year at the school
Comment: If there was one area of need for the Sooners with the class of 2012 it was at wide receiver. Norvell not only kept highly ranked recruit Trey Metoyer from last year in the fold, but added four others that are good fits for the system and all highly regarded. Norvell has landed players from all over the country and did so once again this year.



Notable recruits
St. Louis (Mo.) wide receiver Durron Neal
Oklahoma City (Okla.) wide receiver Sterling Shepard
Inglewood (Calif.) wide receiver Derrick Woods
Runner ups
Texas' Major Applewhite, Baylor's Jim Gush
SEC: D.J. Durkin
  Linebackers coach & Special Teams Coordinator
School: Florida
Class: #5 overall
Background: 3rd year at the school
Comment: When a school like Florida (and a coach like Durkin) owns a state - in this case North Carolina - better than any of the BCS programs there, that's notable. The fact that the talented recruiter had a haul that fueled the Gators top five finish and added significant depth is the reason why he's in this spot.




Notable recruits
Shelby (N.C.) defensive end Jonathan Bullard
Bowling Springs (N.C.) safety Rhaheim Ledbetter
Venice (Fla.) defensive tackle Dante Phillips
Runner ups
Alabama's Jeremy Pruitt, UGA's Bryan McClendon
Pac-12: Tosh Lupoi
  Defensive line coach
School: Washington
Class: #24 overall
Background: 1st year at the school
Comment: Lupoi is easily the top choice in the Pac-12 where his departure from Cal affected the recruiting trail out West just as much as he did Washington's class. Arik Armstead going to Oregon and several decommits from the Bears are a few of the big waves his move caused and shows how good and well connected a recruiter Lupoi is.




Notable recruits
Sacramento (Calif.) safety Shaq Thompson
 
 
Runner ups
UCLA's Adrian Klemm, Stanford's Lance Anderson

National Notes: On the way up on defense

Posted by Bryan Fischer

The class of 2012 rankings won't be updated for a few more weeks but with the high school football season over, it's not too hard to see what players might be moving their way up in the rankings and who might slide down a little bit. Here's a look at each position group and some players that might be a little higher on the board come January.

DEFENSIVE END

On the way up: Ramsey (N.J.) five-star end Darius Hamilton.

What did he do: A terror for opposing offensive lines all season, Hamilton was a constant presence in his opponents' backfield. In the state championship game alone he had a hand in four sacks and you would need a super computer to count the number of defensive pressures he had this year. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder finished his senior year with 74 tackles and an impressive 17 sacks.

The case: He's already a five-star so he won't get a bump in that department but based on his season, should move up into the 20's in the overall rankings (he's 38th right now) and at least leap-frog Dante Fowler among defensive ends given that Fowler didn't play a snap this season. Bosco had a great season and Hamilton was a big reason why.

Also on the way up: Jelani Hamilton (Committed to Miami), Tyriq McCord, Faith Ekakitie (Committed to Iowa)

On the way down: Dante Fowler (Committed to Florida State)

DEFENSIVE TACKLE

On the way up: Prattville (Ala.) defensive tackle Justin Shanks (committed to Florida State)

What did he do: Despite often drawing double or triple teams, Shanks was a key cog in Prattville's 3-4 defense this season. He racked up 60 tackles and 5.5 sacks but was a big factor in stopping the run. He's got a great motor and helped lead his team to a state title.

The case: Shanks is ranked 21st among defensive tackles - one spot behind future teammate Dalvon Stuckey. He put together a great season and has the size, speed, and quickness you look for in a run-stopping interior lineman.

Also on the way up: Sheldon Day (Committed to Notre Dame), Dante Phillips (Committed to Florida)

On the way down: Aziz Shittu

LINEBACKER

On the way up: Stone Mountain (Ga.) linebacker Raphael Kirby (Committed to Miami) and Madison (Ala.) linebacker Reggie Ragland (Committed to Alabama)

What did they do: Kirby had a great senior year and really showed his speed and explosiveness off his senior year. He played inside for Stephenson but projects well as an outside linebacker who can do well in pass coverage despite being a little undersized. In contrast, Ragland looks like he's ready to play for the Crimson Tide in New Orleans this season. He's another prototype inside backer that runs well and is a great tackler in space or in traffic.

The case: Both sit outside the top 10 at their positions and don't have a spot on the overall rankings but that should change. Each has a chance to play early and develop into all-conference selections.

Also on the way up: Anaheim (Calif.) inside backer Butch Pauu (Committed to BYU) and Norfolk (Va.) inside backer Kwontie Moore (Committed to Virginia).

CORNERBACK

On the way up: Miramar (Fla.) corner Tracy Howard.

What did he do: You can tell how good a cornerback is by how often teams don't throw their way and hardly anybody in the state of Florida even looked Howard's way. He still ended the season with an impressive 10 picks and was easily one of the best defenders along the East Coast.

The case: Howard has been a star for a while now and though he doesn't have 4.3-40 speed, is still fast and fluid. He's also very instinctive and really attacks the ball in the air. Howard is ranked as the 20th best cornerback but should easily be in the top 10 at the very least.

Also on the way up: Pasadena (Calif.) corner Kevon Seymour, Elk Grove (Calif.) corner Marcus Rios (Committed to UCLA), Ocala (Fla.) defensive back P.J. Williams (committed to Florida State).

On the way down: Westlake Village (Calif.) corner Ishmael Adams.

SAFETY

On the way up: Fairfax (S.C.) safety Ronald Geohaghan (committed to Clemson)

What did he do: He's a terrific athlete who can play just about any back seven position if needed. He's best suited as a safety and is rangy and physical enough to take away entire parts of the field.

The case: Geohaghan currently sits as the 23rd-ranked safety in the Maxpreps rankings and based on his physical play and coverage skills should see a bump in the position rankings.

On the way down: Lakewood (Wash.) safety Cedric Dozier, College Park (Ga.) defensive back Chaz Elder.
